A review I wrote for ‘Heart Rate Monitors USA’ (HRM USA) about the OOFOS OOcloog Clogs I got from them.
I am usually pretty prosaic and unfussy about footwear, BUT these incredibly squishy and insanely comfortable clogs were something else.
It really did remind me of this song. Do YOU remember it? If you know it, then that is ALL I have to tell you. Walking around in these clogs is like it says in the song.
Read the review, if you need more convincing.
My palms with their end-to-end Simian Lines.
About 10% of the worldwide population have ONE Simian line — with the incidence among Asians higher than with other races.
Having an end-to-end Simian lines, going across both palms, is much rarer — about 3% of the worldwide population. Yes, it is supposed to indicate possible latent health issues. Total bunkum. I will get to that in a second.
I grew up in Ceylon (Sri Lanka) where palm reading is a way of life. I got many comments about my hands — the most memorable from an uncle who was a prominent doctor. “Hhhhmmm. We will have to keep an eye on you. I have only seen hands like this once … and that was with …“. It was a notorious ‘criminal’!
BUT, in the end, astrology notwithstanding, my hands show I am LESS evolved than others! Yep, I am more primitive.
Yes, it is the primeval palm crease from our way distant ancestors and it is common among the other primates. So, I know the truth.
Passing Of Microsoft Co-Founder, Paul Allen, At 65, Signifies The End-Of-An-Era; PCs Have Now Reached Old Age.
Wow. This came as a shock. 65. I think that struck a chord. Same age as me but eight-months older.
He always came across as a decent bloke. Nicer than Bill, I think.
It is the END of an era. PCs, Windows and Microsoft are no longer new or ‘recent’. They have all reached old age..
Paul Gardner Allen (1953 – 2018), RIP

They are trying to free a truck stuck on an embankment.
One guy is pushing REALLY, REALLY hard while standing on the truck bed.
Immediately reminded me of the phrase ‘Munda Logic‘ from my school days in London.
I attended ‘Mill Hill’ Public School (meaning it was a fee-paying private school) from 1969 to 1971 before they expelled me for being a disruptive influence.
Pretty famous school — the place where the VENERABLE “Oxford English Dictionary” (OED) was born! Yep. Look it up.
It was a school with a lot of exposure to the British Empire in its heyday.
There were two expressions that were OFTEN used at the school, during my time, that were pithy, very precise and what today would be called quite racists — though they were not meant to be.
The first was ‘Play the White Man‘. It meant do the right thing. Stiff upper lip and all of that. Basically said, act like a British gentleman. ‘Play the White Man’. I still love and use that phrase. ‘Play the White Man’
The other was ‘Munda Logic’. The above picture is ‘Munda Logic’ epitomized.
‘Munda Logic’ — African Logic!
There was this realization that Africans, at the time, had a different thought process to others. Well, see above.
‘Wog’ was another favorite word. I was a wog — though I really wasn’t. Jesus was a wog — in that wog is specific to men from the Middle East (and NOT the far east).
So, Munda Logic.

This is a worthwhile, fun & rewarding experience. We took part in the May 2018 ‘Spring Clean Up Day‘ and it was a blast. Since all three of us did the full 4-hour shift we got six free tickets which we have yet to use.
Being around the spectacular Castle is always fun and the staff is ultra nice. In May we also got a very nice, free lunch. Hope the weather is good in November.
You should sign up. You will enjoy it. It is good to support the Castle.
